So i have this dilemma: Do i listen to my taste-buds or my brain. I have been feeling better lately, the nausea has mostly passed. But last night the cucumbers in my salad tasted bitter so i covered them in ranch and ate them anyway. This morning i was eating toast with cream cheese, but it tasted funky so i covered it in jam and ate it. Veggies don't make me gag anymore but they still don't seem like a great idea. I am a vegetarian so this distresses me. I just don't know why this baby only wants cereal and milk and potatoes with lots of butter. doesn't it want vitamins?

jldumm - I'm vegetarian also and only craving starches. And... cold stuff, so to counter my macaroni and cheese, I've been making yummy, tasty smoothies.

Yesterday's was delish...

plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 banana
frozen blackberries
fresh spinach
soy milk
whey powder
honey
flax seed

Maybe smoothies would help you feel better, too?

I'm also enjoying lots of veggie muffins. Today I'm making some with sweet potato, spinach, raisins and molasses. YUM!

And - to make my Mac N Cheese healthy, I sometimes throw in some sauteed spinach OR pureed steemed cauliflower and garbanzos

Yeah, I'm currently listening to my taste buds cuz I just can't stomach veggies right now even though I normally like them.

DDC crashing here,

At almost 15 weeks, I still have no desire to eat any vegetables and those are usually the bulk of my diet! Some foods taste strange to me too. I think that as long as we take our vitamins and eat as best as we can manage, everything will be okay.

I'm with you ladies.....my taste buds are going crazy right now!!

I will be 14 weeks on Thursday...and finally have been able to eat fairly normally the past week and a half or so.

ALL I want to eat are carbs...mac and cheese (the organic kind at least!), mashed potatoes with loads of butter, baked potatoes, bagels, cereal, grapes, some yogurt (but it tastes too sweet)...and many foods are tasting way too salty to me!!

I definitely say eat what you can. I haven't eaten as many vegetables as I would LIKE to eat....because my body just hasn't been into that right now. As the weeks progress and I feel better and better I'll eat more.

I've been drinking raw milk like crazy lately, lots of cream cheese and bagels, etc. I think it's totally okay!

I hear ya momma. I am ALL over the starches too & can't even fathom raw veg or a salad right now. I am slowly re-introducing some cooked veg again after the first 3 mos but even then it's selectively.
I've been trying to work them grated into soups, chili & last night it was organic mac & cheese with peas & black beans. Not ideal but at least it had some greenery & protein in it.

I'll 2nd the idea of smoothies too. It's a great way to hide a good handful of spinach or kale (I swear, you can't taste it!). Especially if you mix in some frozen blueberries to cover the colour. Unfortunately I was drinking smoothies daily at the point when my morning sickness kicked in so I still have a bit of an aversion to them.

Thanks Ladies.
I feel like it would make more sense to me if i knew why my body doesn't want these yummy vegetables.
AND am i doing harm if i try to cover them up and sneak them in, by not listening to my body.

Me too!

Bagels and cream cheese, mac and cheese, etc. have been my friends. Spinach, broccoli, kale and other veggies taste awful to me right now.

I like the idea of sneaking them into smoothies! Thanks!

You can sneak them into smoothies *and* muffins. I just made muffins with sweet potatoes, spinach, molasses and raisins and they were so yummy!

Also - baked kale chips are so tasty and easy to make. Another good way to get a green in (though it looses some of its nutrition in the baking process.... it's still beneficial, though)
